I know I posted baby Moorhens big foot the other day and then the next day Mama and babies came up out of the pond and on to the path..

....... so I got a good shot of her feet!

("I take a size 8 but a 12 feels so good!")

She even lifted it up for you to see better... big huh?

I got the baby shots too and there you can really see how "green" their legs and feet are.

Even baby cooperated and lifted his foot for you!

"A pedicure please!"..

I got lucky twice with the birds today.. the Anhinga had disappeared for over a week and I saw him drying his wings on the other side of the pond..

the zoom lens lets me get out there pretty far, but then they aren't as clear even though the camera "says" it's focused.

(above is the Anhinga pretending to be an eagle)

I wish they had whatever they put there for the bird on my side of the pond so I could get better photo's.. oh well... at least you can see his duck like feet that help him swim underwater.  Sometimes I think he's drowned because he hardly ever sticks his head and neck up for air!

Well, that's it from the Pond for today.

Wow! Those feet are just wild. Wonder why they're so big? And it's an interesting point - if they're water fowl, what good are those feet for swimming?

Just musing, my dear. I don't expect you to have the answers!
